Don Cheadle recently launched an Indiegogo campaign for his long-in-development Miles Davis biopic, Miles Ahead, seeking to raise $325,000 towards the film’s overall budget of under $10 million by July 6 to support the principal photography for the feature length film when it goes into production later this summer. Among the pledge prizes are rare Miles Davis posters, limited edition Miles Davis artwork, a coffee table book of Miles’ artwork signed by Don Cheadle, as well as set visits and access to screenings.

While promoting the campaign, Cheadle spoke with Shadow And Act about starring, producing, co-writing, and making his feature directorial debut with the film including several new details about the casting and creative choices.
